Cotton Candy Skies by Julia Johnson

The Beat of Me by Julia Johnson

The Beat of Me 

music pours
through my veins
thumping in my chest
moving to the beat of my heart
I forget the world
everyone else
falls away
all that's left is




Quote of the Week

"Don't be afraid to change. You may lose something good, but gain something better."

Wedding Conversation by Julia Johnson

Wedding Conversation

A light blue ribbon intertwined with white lace is the first thing I noticed as the sales person talked nonsense. I tuned her out, mesmerized by the dress, and I walked straight towards the mannequin who wore the most beautiful article of clothing I’d ever seen.
“Car, that’s the one” my sister struggled to say the words aloud.
“I know” I whispered, worried that I would jinx myself. “Can I try it on?”
“Of course, of course!” the irritating saleswoman responded.
She took the dress down and led us to the dressing room. I couldn’t believe how easy that was. It seemed a bit too easy though, something in my gut was telling me I shouldn’t get my hopes up.
But maybe I was wrong.
I hoped I was wrong.
